British producer and film soundtrack composer Neil Davidge steps into the limelight with his first ever solo record, Slo Light, coming out February 25th via The End Records.

Neil Davidge has had a storied career thus far, best known for his production and co-writing work with the hugely influential Massive Attack. He has also composed the music for several films, including Trouble the Water and Push, while handling production duties for artists as diverse as David Bowie, Damon Albarn, Mos Def, and Snoop Dogg. Slo Light releases next week with vocal turns by the likes of Sandie Shaw and Cate Le Bon, among others. To give you that first taste, we are premiering the video for the record’s first single “Sleepwalking” featuring vox from Emi Green.
  
Meanwhile, Davidge tells us the story behind the song: “The track felt like the theme to an old British TV thriller series with shades of Louisiana voodoo. Emi wrote the perfect tale of dysfunctional love to accompany it. I really struggle describing the music I make. I don’t think in words, I think in pictures, textures, smells, it’s a feeling, it’s gut instinct, it’s why I make music and don’t write lyrics. Emi wrote a fittingly tortured story of dysfunctional love that summed up what I felt about this track.”
